Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster
English League One
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Memorial Stadium (Bristol).
Grant McCann looks to have found the winning formula as Donny became genuine promotional challengers with a splendid streak of four wins and a draw in last five games across competitions. The Rovers climbed up to 7th place in the league ladder and are now just two points shy of Charlton in sixth.
It’s just the Addicks who were Doncaster’s most recent victims. To be fair, we have to mention that Lee Bowyer used a completely reserve line-up seven days ago at The Valley. Donny took advantage of it as Andy Butler and John Marquis scored a goal each in a 0-2 victory in the capital. Marquis has generally been in good touch lately. He took his league tally to ten by netting the second goals in a 2-0 victory over 8th-placed Blackpool in the previous league action. He could keep rolling on Saturday against Bristol Rovers who struggled badly to keep things quiet at the back lately.
Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster: Head-to-head
The head to head record also suggests the away win here.
Doncaster won 6 of 7 meetings with the Pirates over the course of history.
Interestingly, Bristol’s lone win came just in the previous H2H game back in January this year at The Keepmoat.
Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster: Prediction
Bristol Rovers lost four in a row in all competitions before beating Swansea City U21 in Wednesday’s EFL Trophy action. They lost four and won one of past five league matches allowing as many as seven goals in last three defeats.
It will be the music to the ears of John Marquis and we find the value in backing the Englishman to add to his ten-goal tally on the occasion. Furthermore, the value is enormous in Donny’s win at 2.50 odds based on both teams’ recent form as well as their head to head record.
Bristol Rovers vs Doncaster: Bet Tips
Doncaster to win @ 2.50 (6/4)
John Marquis to score anytime @ 2.20 (6/5).
